Study: Varenicline Should be Used to Help Diabetic Smokers Quit

Whilst considered significantly effective, Varenicline known to cause significant moderate to severe psychological side effects.

Titled, “Efficacy and Safety of Varenicline for Smoking Cessation in Patients With Type 2 Diabetes,” this randomized clinical trial involved 300 smoking patients with type 2 diabetes. The patients were given varenicline and followed up at 12, 24, and 52 weeks.

Varenciline, which goes by the trade name of Chantix, is an anti-smoking drug renowned for getting smokers over any cigarette cravings. Whilst considered significantly effective, it is also known to cause significant moderate to severe psychological side effects.

The group given varenicline reported the usual side effects associated with the drug, including nausea, insomnia, abnormal dreams, anxiety, and irritability, at a higher frequency than the placebo group, but none of the adverse affects were considered serious.

This trial showed that the inclusion of varenicline in a smoking cessation program is efficacious in achieving long-term abstinence without serious adverse events, concluded the research team.

Varenicline did not increase the risk of heart attack

Another recent study reported that when compared to nicotine patches, varenicline did not increase one’s risk of heart attack or stroke. By analyzing hospital and death records from people who received the prescription quit smoking medicine between 2011 and 2015, the research team found no difference in incidence of major adverse cardiovascular events, such as heart attack or stroke, in people who were prescribed varenicline, as opposed to those who were prescribed nicotine patches.

The research team added that on the contrary, if anything there were less recorded instances of death from a cardiovascular event in people who were prescribed varenicline as opposed to patches.

Chantix’s known side effects

In the past following numerous reports of serious side effects, the FDA had placed the most severe warning available on the medication, which led to Chantix’s sales dropping from $846 million in 2008, to $671 million last year.

To compensate for this drop, Pfizer had invested heavily in advertising and settling lawsuits against the drug. Moreover, the Pharma company had released data retrieved from a study which allegedly proved that there is no direct link between the consumption of Chantix and experiencing psychological disturbances.

To this effect, after refusing to lift the warning in 2014, the FDA decided to change its stance and drop the warning. The agency required that the medication have its side effects listed, it also specified that the label should state that the medication is more effective than other smoking cessation therapies.

Meanwhile last June, Pfizer was forced to halt the distribution of varenicline and recall some stock after finding elevated levels of nitrosamines in the pills. However, the following month the FDA said it will temporarily allow some manufacturers to distribute the carcinogen-containing drug, below an interim limit of 185 ng per day, until the impurity can be eliminated or reduced to acceptable levels.

The FDA said the risk of exposure is relatively minimal

The US regulator said the health benefits of stopping smoking outweigh the cancer risk from the nitrosamine impurity in the medication. It explained that the risk of exposure to the carcinogen at interim acceptable intake levels up to 185 ng per day presents minimal additional cancer risk, in comparison to a lifetime exposure of 37 ng per day level.

US CDC Survey Finds No Teen Vaping Epidemic

The study found that 9.4% of middle and high schoolers surveyed reported currently vaping. In 2019 this figure was at 20%, and in 2020, 13.1%.

“Alarm bells about a United States’ youth vaping epidemic have now been proven to be false,” said Loucas on discussing the findings. “CAPHRA has long been calling out Bloomberg’s anti-vaping and anti-nicotine activism. We now have government data that completely contradicts their claims of an exploding youth vaping epidemic,” she added.

Titled ‘Notes from the Field: E-cigarette Use Among Middle and High School Students — United States, 2022’, the study found that 9.4% of middle and high schoolers surveyed reported currently vaping. In 2019 this figure was at 20%, and in 2020, 13.1%.

“When you look at just middle school students, just 3.3% are vaping. That’s not an epidemic! It’s no wonder the CDC continues to delay publishing results from its latest Youth Risk Behaviour Survey (YRBS). The falling trend would only prove to legislators that any talk of a youth vaping epidemic is purely imaginative,” said Loucas.

Vape flavours are not to blame

She added that claims that vape flavours are addicting kids to vapes has been proven inaccurate, as nearly half of the youth surveyed cited curiosity as the reason for trying vapes. In fact the 2021 National Youth Tobacco Survey (NYTS) showed that only 13.2% of current youth e-cigarette users cited using them because of flavours.

“Politicians around the world are under pressure to restrict access and flavours. They need to understand that the reason the CDC is increasingly hiding vaping data is because it doesn’t suit funders like Bloomberg and their anti-vaping activism,” said Loucas.

Bp Mods Lightsaber Pod Mod Kit review

Excellent pod capacity for larger storage.
You don’t have to worry about the e-juice consumption when traveling, the actual measurement by Captain is at least 2 days.

Let’s talk about its obvious shortcomings.

Bp Mods Lightsaber Pod Mod Kit review

The device is a cylinder with no protective measures. It is really easy to slip away or even fall to the ground when placed on the platform, so be careful.
In the future, I hope that there will be some accessories that can play a role in fixed placement, or we can equip it with a protective bag by ourselves.
The stability and life of the built-in battery need to be studied for a longer time.
It is not practical to replace the 18650 or 18350 batteries. I heard that a Lightsaber Pod Mod Kit with an external battery will be released later. You can look forward to it.

Bp Mods Lightsaber Pod Mod Kit review

Well, the Lightsaber Pod Mod Kit is generally good-looking.
The taste is great for vaping, and the overall performance is very powerful.

Study Claims That Secondhand Vapour Exposure Can Cause Serious Respiratory Issues

Titled, “Secondhand nicotine vaping at home and respiratory symptoms in young adults,” the study looked for any adverse health effects of exposure to secondhand vapour. Led by Prof. Talat Islam, the research team examined data from 2090 high-school students aged 17-18, over a six-year period between 2014-2019 looking specifically for the prevalence of bronchitis and shortness of breath.

Secondhand nicotine vape exposure was associated with increased risk of bronchitic symptoms and shortness of breath among young adults,” concluded the researchers.

While another recent study published in the Annals of the American Thoracic Society reported that EVALI lung injuries, which the authors inaccurately attribute to vaping, can lead to long-term respiratory problems, cognitive impairment and mental health issues.

The effects of EVALI on the lungs

Titled, “Prospectively Assessed Long-Term Outcomes of Patients with E-cigarette or Vaping-associated Lung Injury (EVALI),” the study said that the long-term impacts of e-cigarette or vaping associated lung injury (EVALI) can persist for a year or more. “Even at 12 months after an EVALI diagnosis, the majority of our patients still had serious residual effects,” said lead study author Dr. Denitza Blagev.

The study followed 73 EVALI patients who had an average age of 31 and were either treated at Intermountain Healthcare or University of Utah Health. The participants were followed up after 12-months between July 2020 and August 2021.

The research team found that at the 12-month follow-up appointment, 48% of the patients still had respiratory problems, about one-fourth reported significant shortness of breath. A total of 59% had mental issues, namely anxiety, depression, and 62% had experienced post-traumatic stress.

“These are not minor complications, and they are still happening even in patients whose injuries were not severe enough to require (intensive) care,” Blagev said. “These long-term issues are also happening in relatively young people who could face a long life of continuing complications.”

Sadly the authors failed to highlight that was not actually caused by regular lawful e-cigarettes but by illicit cartridges containing unregulated THC oil.
